I MUST correct some serious errors in your obituary of Kenneth Monkman [by Nicolas Barker, 26 March] relating to myself, writes Vita Marr (nee Duncombe Mann - not Duncan).

Kenneth Monkman and I were married in 1945 (at Caxton Hall), not 1946, and it was not until 1964 (when our son Francis was 15 years of age) that I started proceedings for divorce. I feel it is open to question whether a 20-year marriage can justly be described as brief. I do not know when my ex- husband remarried, but clearly it could not have been in 1959.
